KI7MH

Murray, KI7MH will be heading back out fishing off the coast of Washington. He will be hunting the ever elusive tuna fish somewhere around 50 miles off Westport on his troller Silvia. Many of the Club members have kept in contact with Murray while he was in Alaska fishing using the HF ham bands. Namely 7464 and 14284. Due to propagation on his west coast adventure a 75 meter frequency may be pressed into use. Normal times for contacting Murray are at 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. PDT.

Ever heard of AIS? The Automatic Identification System (AIS) is an automatic tracking system used on ships and by vessel traffic services (VTS) for identifying and locating vessels by electronically exchanging data with other nearby ships and ground based receivers. Murray recently outfitted the Silvia with a AIS. When travelling many of the Club members watched Murray's progress through one of the many web based AIS tracking sites. It will be fun to see if the Silvia shows up on the coast.
